Sweating is actually really good for you. And antiperspirants aren't. Ditch the antiperspirant and get your sweat on with Woohoo. It's 100% natural, healthy, sensitive skin friendly and IT JUST WORKS (...ALL day). The deodorant you’ve been waiting for. And now you can try it in this handy travel/mini size!
They had right idea. Getting your “sweat on” has its benefits, and it isn’t something we should be stopping with aluminium filled antiperspirants.
Fun Sweaty Fact #1 – Your sweat doesn’t actually smell. What causes BO (body odour) is the bacteria that start munching on proteins in the sweat. They break down the proteins into acids and that’s what smells.
Sweating is normal and healthy. These are just some of the good things that sweating does for your body:
So it is pretty cool stuff, and it makes you think “why you would want to stop it?” Especially if you could sweat without the fear of stinky-ness.
Fun Sweaty Fact #2 – Women have more sweat glands than men. But the men’s are more active and that is why they sweat more.
Deodorants and Antiperspirants are not the same thing.
Antiperspirants use aluminium salts to either block, close or clog your pores to prevent you from sweating. In Australia they are classed and regulated as therapeutic goods because they alter your body’s normal function.
Deodorants don’t interfere with you pores or glands. They still let you sweat. Deodorants work by creating an environment on your skin that prevents bacteria from having a wild party stinking up the joint.
Fun Sweaty Fact #3 – Stress sweat smells worse than exercise sweat. This is because it comes from different glands where the sweat has a higher percentage of proteins and fats compared to exercise sweat. The bacteria go nuts for the extra protein and fats and gorge on it like its Christmas dinner.
Aluminium chloride, aluminium zirconium, aluminium chlorohydrate and aluminium hydroxybromide are all commonly used in antiperspirants. Aluminium is not normally found in the body so a big red flag is raised when researchers find it in our tissue. It shows that our body absorbs aluminium.
Aluminium is a neurotoxin and it has links to increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. It has also been found to disrupt your endocrine system by mimicking the hormone estrogen. Anything that can do this is a massive red flag in the breast cancer world.
It’s also the culprit for staining your clothes yellow!
So as you can see, it’s important to embrace the sweat and ditch antiperspirants.
But we understand that no one wants to go around smelling like you have been camping for a week without showers. That is why we have created a 100% natural deodorant that's aluminium free.
Waaaaaay back in January 2015 we asked for some willing human hamsters (product testers) to trial a natural deodorant for us. It took us a while to get the formula ready, but we got there :)
The human hamsters did a fabulous job and sweated a whole lot to put the deodorant through its paces. Their feedback overwhelmingly positive (hooray!). The biggest complaint was that the jar had finished!
It took us about 9 months, but we have totally nailed the formula.
We’re always nervous that new products aren’t going work as well as we planned. We shouldn’t have worried as the natural deodorant worked for all bar 1 of the hamsters and no one reported any skin irritations. Wowsers.
Irritated skin was our biggest concern because bicarb soda can really be uncomfortable for some. Bicarb is amazing at stopping B.O. (the dreaded body odour) but too much leaves you with red, itchy armpits. We don’t wish that on anyone.
Lucky we're incredibly clever and have worked out a way to use bicarb soda without causing irritation, even for sensitive souls. Woohoo!
Fun Sweaty Fact #4 – Anthropologist Louis Leakey suspects that our body odour comes from our ancient defence system to stop animals from eating us.
"No irritation, no body odour smell, happy arm pits"
"I apply in the morning after a shower & throughout the day I didn't experience any BO. I'm quite used to natural deodorants that allow you to perspire and this stuff does its smell-blasting job - very well. With other similar deodorants I have experienced an oily mess when sweating but Happy Skin Care deo paste stays put. Thumbs up!"
"I really appreciated the lack of irritation. With the XXXXXXX one it was good for a while (like a few months) and then began to cause darkness/redness - possibly as moving into cooler months and less lubrication? So far so good with yours. For me, much better stopping BO than XXXXXXX . I've recently also gotten XXXXXXX and yours is more effective than that too."
"It is easy to use, not messy, but most of all it works well, only a small amount required then it's set and forget for the rest of the day because it does its job so well. I love it, would recommend it, and definitely buy it again. It took a little while to get used to the new application, but it's good and long lasting, economical. No white marks on my clothes."
"Kept me smelling fresh all day sometimes after a work out required an extra application but worked amazingly. Minimal wetness but it is winter too but I am quiet active"
"I haven't experienced any irritation or burning with this deo, even when applied directly after shaving - whereas other brands have been a bit rough in texture, even grainy, and can leave my pits feeling raw & inflamed from the bicarb soda & lack of the right nourishing ingredients/ratio"
"I found it to work wonders! I work out at the gym frequently and even then, no bad odor whats so ever. It feels natural on, covers and neutralizers body odor and balances perspiration smells, with the slightest of fragrance emitting, it really does work well and gives peace of mind. I found this deodorant highly effective, in that regard especially."
With clean, dry hands use the tip of your index finger collect to a pea sized amount of deodorant and warm it in your fingertips. Rub it under your arm until it disappears (just like you would a moisturiser). P.S. If you’re used to using an antiperspirant, please remember that this isn’t one! This deodorant works by neutralising odour and keeps you dryer by absorbing moisture, but it DOESN’T block your pores with aluminium to stop you from sweating. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to this type of deodorant but it’s worth the wait!
